Rafael's story

Rafael R. M., is 61 years old, he is married and has a son who is his top priority. His son is 22 years old. With this loan he wants to buy two cows, the idea is to have cattle for the dual purpose of milk and meat. He hopes to adequately care for them in order to earn the highest possible income when he sells them. This is his first loan with FUDECOSUR and he is very happy with the services that they offer. Don Rafael has worked with cattle for many years. He hopes that he will be able to provide for his family a better quality of life and a more stable economic situation and to be able to continue growing as a person and a producer.
